Smartware Mybook Live Backup fills drive


I have a 1TB and a 3TB Mybook live and a desktop PC with 1.5TB storage. I use the 3TB as a backup for everything and there are no other files on it (other than backup files). 1TB is set to automatically update a restore point on the 3TB. Using Smartware, I backup my PC to the 3TB as well. Everything was working fine till yesterday when the 3TB drive is now full (128 kb left). 1TB cannot do the restore point update and smartware stops backup right after I click start backup. The PC plus the 1TB contains much less than 3TB of data. I know Smartware keeps old versions of changed or deleted files but it should delete those files when drive is starting to fill. Also isn’t Smartware aware of the restore point on the 3TB? How can I remove the unnecessary old versions? Is there a way to set a quota on the amout of drive space that can be used on the 3TB so there is always room left for the restore point from 1TB? Thanks for any suggestions

One of the option you have is to set how many back up the drive will create. Go to smartware setting/Set up software/file history/you can choose from 1 to 25, depending on how many copies you want the software to create then hit apply.

Hope this helps,
